65%, two-thirds of the country, agrees that america is in a state of decline. that sort of sets the mood. then we asked them, is the country headed on the wrong track or the right direction? look at this. 61% say the wrong direction. to put this in some perspective, in 2006 at this point in time, 54% said we were headed in the wrong direction. in 1994, 57%. why do i bring up those two dates? those are the last two times that congress changed hands in a wave election. things are actually worse now than in 1994 or 2006. the president, as you pointed out, his job rating at a dismal 45%, 49% disapprove. but look at his numbers handling the economy. 56% disapprove of that. among likely voters actually, 61% disapprove of how he's handling the economy. how this translates into november in the match-up, do you prefer a republican-controlled congress or democratic-controlled congress, among all voters, it's even. but among those voters who are most likely to go to the polls, it is a nine-point republican edge.
